Dreaming Up Democracy with Masha Gessen at Albertine
This fall, the fifth annual Festival Albertine will take place at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy from October 30 to November 3.
Curated by Russian-American journalist and author Masha Gessen, this year’s edition will explore the critically topical theme of “Reimagining Democracy” to ask not what democracy is but what democracy could be. Join us at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy for six discussions, tackling politics, borders, mental health, work, gender and education. Our French and American guest speakers will include, among many others, Joseph Stiglitz,Yann LeCun, Siri Hustvedt, Laure Murat, and Gauz, Ingrid LaFleur and Johana Hedva, Eric Fassin, Phia Menard, L’Oiseau Mouche and Sasha Velour.
All of the events are free and open to the public with RSVP.
We hope to see many of you there !
